Malaria remains a major cause of illness and death in the African Region. In Nigeria, it is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality accounting for about 30% of childhood deaths and 11% of maternal deaths.
Bi-Monthly Facility Stock Report (BFSR) is a tool used in reporting the two months situation of the consumption pattern of malaria health products at a service delivery point.
The Procurement and Supply Chain Management (PSM) branch of National Malaria Elimination Program (NMEP) in collaboration with the Catholic Relief Services (CRS), a Principal Recipient on theGlobal fund Malaria grant to jointly implement the improvement of key performance indicator and quality of data and report from Health facilities in a bid to ensuring reliable availability of malaria health products across 13 States in Nigeria.
NMEP will be supported by States Logistics Management Coordinating Unit (LMCU) alongside the State Supply Chain Management Specialist in the States across 13 Global Fund-supported States to improve the quality of bimonthly facility stock reports (BFSR) generated from the health facilities. The outcome of the BFSR analysis will be used for tracking trends in HFs consumption, stock positions, identifying errors in the report, identifying overstocks, and redistributing products. This is will be used as a criterion to guide targeted and structured capacity building at the health facilities with the goal of improving the quality of reports and ultimately the quality of care for malaria.
